COUNCIL AND EMPLOYEES
As a local government, Council gets their authority through The Municipalities Act, 2006, which is the foundation for rural municipal government. Our municipal council is an elected body made up of a reeve and six councillors representing six divisions. The Reeve and Councillors serve a four year term commencing on the first meeting following a general election. The Reeve and Councillors for Divisions 1, 3, and 5 are elected in the same year and Councillors for Divisions 2, 4 and 6 are elected in the same year as per The Local Government Election Act, 2015.
The next general municipal election for Reeve and odd numbered divisions will be held on Wednesday, November 13, 2024.
